I imagine it's like tightrope walking
But on drugs
I dont know which way to lean
Where I am
Why I'm trying so hard to stay balanced
Where I'll land if I fall off the rope
I make my moves carefully
But my mind is spinning
I am preparing myself for what my mind seems to believe is inevitable
The fall
The end
I want to keep walking
The farther I go the better I feel
If only I could keep my balance in this altered state of mind i refuse to define
Navigating romance is terrifying and I have
Incredibly poor balance

It's like a dream
Walking outside to find you sitting on the ledge of a ditch
Watching traffic
You always seem to find the perfect balance of speaking but still letting things be unspoken
And though they say I'm far from home
The drive has never seemed so short

I wish I could ask you to stay
That youd never leave
But I'd hate the thought that you could want to leave but feel trapped by my desperation
Your love seems so unconditional when it comes to me
But as time goes on I feel as if even your love for me is fading
I wonder terribly often that maybe I am becoming a worse person
And that you greatly dislike the changes you see in me
I'm too tired to process the level of ****** this is so

My bonds with people seem like wells
Wells that I am constantly running dry
And anymore it seems as if I am in a desert
I'm sorry
If I come to drink from the wells of friendship too often
I wish I could be more like rain

Everything is boring
And my dreams have never been so out of reach
I have no desire to return home without the touch and embrace of another
If only we could both stay here
Until my dreams were caught
I want to ask you so many things
If only youd take me seriously and answer my questions
I should take what I can get
Jokes and glances
But I've always wanted more
And I dont think that will change anytime soon

For needless things
Things I've been told are okay to do
For saying no
Forgive me for expecting things from someone residing below the floor

For the better half of an hour
Some 24 hours ago
You sounded like you had a conscience
Like you could understand the deeper meanings of sadness, anger, and guilt
Talking philosophy
As if maybe there was a chance at happiness for us
